ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are things that happened years ago that you still cringe to think of, and this is a lucky day for letting go. You’re not defined by the past. You’re entitled to making as many iterations of yourself as you please.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Animals are never on their phones — one of the many things you appreciate about them. Your connection to creatures will bring joy, grounding and the sense of living totally in the moment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Often the best way to say things is not the first one that pops to mind. A friendly, diplomatic approach takes practice, and you’ll get plenty in the weeks to come. Today’s power question: What if we did it this way instead?
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your solo strength is remarkable, but sociability has definite advantages. For instance, exercising with friends gives you an endorphin boost, and the accountability factor makes it easier to establish the habit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People who are tired have cranky opinions and complaints and are not fun to be around. You don’t want to be that person, so you believe what your body tells you and make rest and relaxation a priority.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). An exclusive group intrigues you. Are you familiar enough with its culture to join? Find out more. As you gain a measure of expertise, doors swing open. As usual, you’ll remain modest and focused on others all the way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some degree of worry is to be expected and will serve you well, helping you anticipate and avoid future problems. You’ll take stress in stride, handle it with grace and attract good fortune.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll welcome contradictions. Without contrast we couldn’t see or understand anything at all. Comprehension of light relies on the outlines of darkness. Detail is shading.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). While the success of others may not pose a threat to your own, you wouldn’t be human if you didn’t occasionally find it annoying. You’ll wisely avoid the futility of competing when it’s not a competition.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll turn down your inner heat to keep the emotional weather around you mild. It works. You’ll stop the wind. It’s easy to go faster than the wind when there is no wind.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Every behavior has a payoff. To change a behavior, understand its payoff. Figuring out your own motives will require objectivity, honesty and compassionate nonjudgment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Thinking back on your journey, those times of uncertainty and awkwardness were an essential part of the deal. It takes feeling lost to appreciate the relief of being found, even (and especially) in regard to finding yourself.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 20). You’ll ask better questions to turn your work in a lucrative direction. You’ll bring different resources together to create something efficient and unique. Also in the stars: personal work earns tender rewards. You’ll get in on the ground level of a venture. Big planning goes into a formal event — one for the ages. Taurus and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 15, 9 and 40.
